Arte Description and History
In Tales of Innocence, Spada transforms into his past incarnation, the greatsword Durandal. As a massive sword, he spins across the entire field, sweeping horizontally through all enemies before flipping into the air and ending with a downward thrust which pierces the primary target into the ground.
The animation of this attack was changed significantly in Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2 and its sequel. As with the rest of the cast from Tales of Innocence, his transformation is seen as a spoiler, but unlike other characters, he cannot perform the same actions in his human form. Instead, he rises into the air surrounded by a divine light before spinning vertically downwards into the enemy. He continues the attack by launching the enemy into the air before launching a barrage of thrusts at the airborne enemy.
In the PlayStation Vita version, the animation of this mystic arte changed once more. Spada dashes towards the enemy and performs various slashes, and ends with a kick, sending the enemy flying. Then he follows the enemy by jumping towards a magic cicle, transforming into his past life, Durandal, prior to piercing through the enemy.
